So Fun

So I get to be on this podcast with two fantastic and brilliant guys who love the Lord and love partnering with folks from all over the country to do ministry. And we talk about what we've learned doing the work we do, how we've messed up and learned from the mistakes we've made (especially earlier on in our own ministries), and we share all the amazing stories we've gathered from all over—stories of inspiration and success. We have lots of fun, and I can't remember recording one episode that laughter wasn't a part of it. So give it a listen and let us know what you think. We love getting ideas for topics and success stories to share with others. Drop me an email.

Best New Ministry Podcast

I could not be more excited to see Ministry Architects enter into the world of podcasting. I cannot think of an organization I'd rather see on the field of ministry podcasts. Their message of creating sustainable, lay-driven, visionary ministries is desperately needed. The podcast takes the message of ministry architects and makes it accessible. Crucial conversations about ministry from a variety of voices and perspectives in easy to follow episodes with just the right length. As someone in the field of ministry podcasts, I could not be more thrilled to recommend to others to listen to the Sustainable Ministry Show. Keep up the great podcasting.
